How do I place my own Amazon affiliate link into a text capsule? I should know by now how to do this, but I don't and I had no idea that I would get 100% of the commission by doing so!
Lily, I take the link from Amazon (with my affiliate number included) and add it as a hyperlink.
If I were interested in linking "blue widgets" in my text box, highlight the words "blue widgets" and click the hyperlink button. Paste in the amazon link and hit save.
Hope that helps.
Just make sure you have the amazon associates number in the url. I keep the amazon associates banner at the top of the amazon page and the button on the far left hand side says "link to this page." That brings up the url for the product with your referral built in.
Okay, now I feel stupid...didn't realize it was that easy! Thanks, Mutiny!
Thanks for bringing up the question Lily because until Paul mentioned it in the other thread I wasn't aware of the share opportunity either.
Thanks Mutiny for clarification
Mutiny....just to clarify, when you hyperlink, you use the html code for the product (which is what's provided when you click "link to this page")?
I typically strip out the image piece of it and just copy the html code for the product itself (since I am prone to 'oopses' I will go back and make sure it works.
I think though that if you take this route, you are restricted by the no more than two links to a web site rule? If yes, it means you could not do this if you wanted to feature more than two products. Can someone clarify?
Lily, I am on the road today, but I will send you a note when I get home tonight. It is easy to do once you know what to look for. You won't have any troubles.

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2 in-text amazon links whereas we can make a slew of Amazon links using the Amazon...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...

As Cagsil noticed, we are in the process of testing out some changes to our text capsule editor. It's been turned on for a small number of specially selected trial users for a couple of days already, and now it's available to all. In order to switch, just change the settings on your...

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours yesterday linking an old series that I have together. It included about 20 or so hubs...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...
